Cuts hitting close to home

This started going around last weekend. Hearing many stories, Some say that the Parks will open May 1...a 1 month shutdown.
Guess we'll have to wait and see.

See the list of all the Oklahoma Army Corps campgrounds being closed because of the sequester

many State Parks closing

after collecting a lot of money donated from the public
so as to keep some parks open
the Park Dept found many millions that they had misplaced

have not heard about the returning of any monies to the public

what do they do stick that money in a drawer someplace

hey boss look what I found in this drawer
looks like about 50 million dollars

now who stuck that in there and forgot about it ??

Sequester this Sequester that. What a bunch of panty waists. Thats about all I can say!

BTW Bob I am sorry that camping is not finding it's way to you. I do hope you find some good places to go though.
